I am trying bring in land survey contour lines into SketchUp to build a site with. I have an SVG of all the contour lines in vector format. I converted this SVG to DXF using CloudConvert (https://cloudconvert.com/svg-to-dxf).
When I go into SketchUp > Import and import the DXF, all of the contour lines come in as a line thickness with a face instead of just lines. In other words, where one line should be, there are two lines with butt ends that form a face of the line thickness.
I thought this might be due to how the vector file line weights might be impacting the export of the SVG. I’m using a Mac app called Affinity Designer as part of a method of getting raster image lines converted to vector. In Affinity, I set the lineweight to 0pts and exported the SVG, but after going through CloudConvert to DXF and importing into SketchUp, I still get a lineweight face instead of just the single line.
Does anyone have any ideas about why this is happening or how to get JUST LINES?
Thanks for the help.
